☷ Searchlight, Nevada - Area Harbors Offering Summer Support to Families Youth 16 June 2022

Searchlight, , state Nevada
| 10| 2
   Families and youth in need of counseling , tutoring and other support services over the summer are reminded that the Harbor juvenile assessment program is here to help .
   The Harbor has
   five locations
    in the Las Vegas Valley operating seven days a week from 8 a . m . to 10 p . m . to assist families coping with problem behavior and other concerns . Signs that children and teens may need help include depression , anxiety , drug or alcohol use , isolation , bullying , delinquency or changes in behavior . Appointments can be made by calling the program’s main number at ( 702 ) 455 - 6912 .   Walk - ins are accepted . Locations and more information about the program are listed on its website at
   www . theharborlv . com
    .  
   “The pandemic took a toll on our community and our families , and the transition back to in - person learning at school was difficult for many kids , ” said Jack Martin , Director of Clark County Juvenile Justice Services , which oversees the Harbor program in coordination with multiple community partners . “We encourage youth and families to connect with the Harbor if they are in need of services to get a fresh start over the summer so they can get off to a great school year this fall . ”
   The Harbor began in 2016 as a pilot program to offer diversion services to prevent youth from entering the juvenile justice system . Counseling , mentoring , substance abuse treatment and life skills classes are top areas of referrals . Community partners that support the  Harbor’s operations include the Clark County School District , Clark County Department of Family Services , the area cities and police departments , Nevada Departments of Health and Human Services and Child and Family Services , Clark County Family Court , Clark County District Attorney’s Office , Eagle Quest , Three Square and several nonprofit organizations .  
   Due to its success in working with youth and families , Clark County expanded the Harbor and created the Truancy Prevention Outreach Program ( TPOP ) . TPOP evolved from the Harbor’s work with families and community partners to address underlying causes of truancy and chronic absenteeism . Student absences are often rooted in problems the program helps address including health issues and family struggles such as housing instability , food insecurity and child - care issues , all of which were compounded for many families during the pandemic .  
   To date , the Harbor has served more than 23 , 000 youth and families . About 25 percent of Harbor clients are walk - ins from the community , brought to the center by parents or caregivers seeking guidance with their children . Another 35 percent are families referred to the Harbor by the School District and government partners . Other referrals come directly from police dropping kids off at a Harbor location instead of the juvenile detention center or intake staff at the detention center diverting kids to a Harbor if they have been arrested for a first - time or low - level offense .  Anyone in the community who believes a child or family could be served by the Harbor , including coaches , ministers , and relatives , is encouraged to contact the program for referrals to local resources .
